Body temperature allows us to evaluate the efficiency of the thermal regulation which occurs in the human body in relation to environmental temperatures and the intensity of the activities we do. The peripheral temperature (skin, mucous membranes, muscles, limbs, etc.) varies a lot.

It sound like her tension went down momentarily, But if she's back to 36 she's fine. She may have low blood pressure or diabetes, to know for sure, it's best she visits a doctor so he or she can give her the appropriate tests and find out the cause.

Hope this helps
